Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Vince gone

I will also admit to not being such a huge fan of Vince's but he was FAMILY! I am very sad to hear about bashing from Deadheads and his mistreatment by band members. Vince adored Jerry and Jerry him. That't the most important of all right now because well, they are together. I am so sorry for this tragedy.

When Vince first got the job, he had a very scant knowlege of their music. The Dead picked him, apparently they thought he was worthy. He did a great job of immersing himself in their music and fitting himself into the keyboard slot, on the fly, working without a net.

I liked Vince a lot. I liked his interpretation of the music, liked his style, thought he was a very worthy member of my favorite band.

I can't give any respect to anyone who says he didn't do a GREAT job, or that he was in any way unworthy of respect with regards to his time with the Dead.

If there's a Rock and Roll heaven, well, just imagine it yourself.
